At the top of the vacuum, there is a button for silver clean that can work to start, end or pause the session. At the bottom, there is a home icon, which will send the robot to back to the dock. On top of it was the icon for spot cleaning, and then above that was the backlit panel that shows the errors, usage of battery and Wi-Fi connectivity. There is also a removable dustbin, bot, bumper and RCON sensor.

It has a charging dock and dual-mode virtual wall beacon. If I slid up the virtual wall, it effectively emits the 10 feet digital barrier in order to keep this vacuum out of the spaces and rooms that we don’t want the cleaner to enter.
